Residents, schools and businesses are all being encouraged to take part in a borough-wide consultation on proposed changes to how on-street parking is managed in Brent.
With significant pressure on demand for parking spaces across the borough, we are seeking the views of everyone in Brent on how the demand for parking spaces can be better managed. A consultation questionnaire was launched earlier today (13 April 2016) so you can have your say.
Cllr Eleanor Southwood, Brent Council’s Cabinet Member for the Environment, said:
“Parking is always a hot issue. We only have 33,000 car parking spaces for the 56,000 homes in controlled parking zones in the borough, which creates huge pressure. This wide-ranging consultation is a real opportunity to address the problem.”
“We’re committed to making Brent a borough that is accessible for everyone. Finding ways of better managing on-street parking will ensure that people who need a parking space can find one.
“Through this consultation, residents, businesses, schools and visitors alike can have their say on proposals for managing demand for spaces.
“We want to work with residents, businesses and schools to shape up a new approach that will encourage the use of more sustainable transport where possible, keep traffic moving and continue our efforts to improve air quality across the borough.
“Your views will be vital in helping Cabinet decide on the way forward. I’m keen to hear a wide range of opinions and would encourage anyone who would like to have their say to do so before the consultation closes in May.”
